Will show when I'm done.
But having a cold slows me down. xD
Sounds like they are getting eyes now. A few of my babies are growing up, too.

You can try erythromycin, it's very mild and shouldn't harm the plants in there. That's the problem with planted tanks, most meds and things are too strong and will probably kill your plants (and your biological bacteria). Your only other option is to remove all the girls and put them in a 10gal bare hospital tank for treatment. Otherwise, just treat cases as they come up in hospital tanks. 3 tsps of epsom salt per gallon, warm water, encourage her to eat foods with fibers like brine shrimp. API Furan-2 might help also. I hate dropsy.

Sorry about your cold, Olympia. :(

Back to work.

lord, every time i read something about sick fish I run and get the flashlight and make everyone hold still. Since the girls have been altogether they dont get their daily checks when i cleaned the tubs.

I still have SHARK seperated, I think i will put her in there again tom. Because goldie loves the turned off filter so much, i made a cave, cut a hole in the side of it and put a suction cup on the end and put to the side, part out of water. But now blue keeps stealing it, so need to make some more.

Made a floating island, with a center hole and put my bigest plant on it, roots hanging down.

No Im going to put barbie laptop, water bottle, pink cateye sunglasses, and pink heels on it, lol. I want to put the chaise on it or the swing chair but i cant find it. This tank is so eclectic, lol peach roses and all.

Sad moment.

Anyway. I'm excited to try my new tea. I bought 2 new green teas. One has goji berries and raspberries, the other has jasmine, orange and passionfruit (the one I'm trying first).

Have you seen this vid of the clear head fish living in the deep waters of the pacific?

At the end you see it escape a trap, lol.

I bus from a school sort of near here flipped over. o-o Geez. I hope everyone is okay, or at least not hurt too badly. That reminds me of how silly the seat belt laws are. Buckle up your children! Unless you get a whole bunch of them together on one vehicle..

You will always be my best friend, .

OMG I love that fish. Everytime I see it I try to find out the hoax but I know it's actually real! The ocean is so cool. There are strange creatures down the bottom of the frigid Atlantic. - They spot them every year when they go down to the Titanic.
Japanese oceans are probably te wierdest.
